    Plus the front of the thing is ugly as all get out too. Am I the only one who thinks the front looks like a cheap piece of plastic?

    I'm glad everybody will be staying away from the Bionic. That will leave possibly the top performing device available for me after reviews come in :).

    Don't shoot the messenger

    Since the bionic and photon are (likely) very close to the same phone, I decided to go down to sprint and try it out.
    Impressions:
    The Good-
    -Very snappy and smooth (and the dual core will more than likely keep it that way even when it's loaded down with apps)
    -The screen it very bright. It must have a pretty high nit value.
    -The form (to me) is pretty cool (and yes, it remains to be seen if the bionic will be a looker in real life)
    -It feels very nice in the hand
    -The video smooth on the unit without skips or stutters
    -The webtop (correct terminology?) is actually kind of appealing. They had a setup there with a big monitor, keyboard, mouse and remote. And I kind of dig it. I can envision some nice business applications being developed for it.

    The Bad-
    -The pentile screen, while nice and bright, always looks like you're looking through a very fine mesh (yes, I know it will be a personal choice between brightness and less pixellation)
    -The camera still takes smurf pictures with the blue hue (and neither I or the rep could find any sort of white balance or adjustment)

    My (as in me. you do what you want) final verdict is that looking at that pentile screen all day would bug the stew out of me (even more than the blue pics), so I'll be waiting for one of the other things (hopefully) coming down the pipeline. Hang on D1 Old Buddy, hang on.

    That is super retarded to assume, everyone knows only a handful of people even know about a release date for the iphone 5. It hasn't even been confirmed it exists, just speculation on everything because Apple usually releases in September.
